This review is from: The Power (Hardcover)
I bought this book and didn't expect it to be anything but repetitive, which it is, BUT it has "hit home" that love and forgiveness go hand in hand. Repetition is necessary to emphasise the message that the author wants to put across to the reader because most people reading this book are searching for some form of help with their lives.
If you are grieving for a lost love, be it through divorce or bereavement the best way to move on is to love yourself, but more importantly to pass love and gratitude on to other people no matter what has taken place previously if there has been friction or misunderstanding.
The person you have "lost" doesn't know how you are feeling, whether it be with anger, heartache, grief, revenge etc, so why waste time and effort in being negative.
Let it go,; you are only hurting yourself, so be positive by sending loving thought processes, or even getting in touch with no recriminations (that will surprise them!) and wish them well with their lives. In this way I have, with the help of this book changed my life around and as a result feel calm, more balanced and ready to move on with the next stage of my life and have no anxieties about what my ex-husband is doing with his life.
It is my future that counts and that is only possible due to The Power of this book helping me to give love, smile more readily, sleep better and think more positively about life; grateful that I have lovely friends who have stood by me through a tough time of my life. Now I can repay them by giving back the happy friend that they thought they had lost and show my love and gratitude.
It is a POWERFUL message and one can read this book all the way through, or select the chapters that are relevant to yourself.
Criticism of the constant repetitions; the same statement said but using a different adjective, verb, adverb to get the point over became less irritating as I absorbed the true strength of the text.
Thank you Rhonda Byrne.
